Editorial Reviews


""""The style and format of the book is excellent. It is easily read with ample illustrations.""" Don B. Chaffin, PhDDirector, Center for ErgonomicsThe University of Michigan """Finally, an authoritative text that provides a scientific foundation for understanding the mechanisms of musculoskeletal injury. Knowledge of this information is essential for several professional groups, including those interested in the biomedical aspects of injury mechanisms, those concerned with injury prevention, and those involved in facilitating recovery from injury. For individuals with these interests, this text is required reading.""" Roger M. EnokaProfessorUniversity of Colorado at Boulder " ""Injury occurs from mechanical overload of tissue. This simple tenet is often overlooked by those responsible for injury prevention and rehabilitation of those already injured. This fine textbook fills the current need for a resource that synthesizes the links between tissue properties, skeletal architecture, applied loads and injury. While general principles of tissue biomechanics and injury mechanisms are described, special areas of expertise of the authors shine, particularly those of loading and adaption, and injuries specific to areas of the body. The material is well organized into chapters that emphasize ""concluding comments"" and contain functional and usable information for scientific and clinical students alike. Professors Whiting and Zernicke are to be thanked for filling the need and to be congratulated for filling it so well.""" Stuart M. McGill, Ph.D.Professor of Biomechanics, University of Waterloo" --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.


"Unlike other biomechanics and kinesiology books, this one offers a comprehensive overview of the biomechanical basis of musculoskeletal injury that is crucial to the understanding of how and why injuries occur."

21 of 21 people found the following review helpful By John E. Baker, Ph.d., P.E. on December 21, 1999
Format: Hardcover
The authors Whiting and Zernicke are to be congratulated for this high-quality reference book. As someone who testifies often in civil litigation cases regarding the physical mechanics of motor vehicle and premises accidents and the associated mechanisms of human injury, I found this book to be a superb addition to my technical library. For the uninitiated in injury mechanics, it begins impressively with a low-gear, historical, and introductory manner, and takes the reader though many basic mechanical concepts. The book then covers a wide assortment of human injuries and their causal mechanisms. I observed that the book is very well-formated with titles, sub-titles, text, add-in framed articles, effective anatomical line drawings, and illustrative photographs. While the book is technical in nature, I noted that it was written to be appreciated by those outside the technical area of injury biomechanics. I readily recommend this book to anyone interested in the mechanisms of human injury.

This is a great text. I read the first edition cover-to-cover in grad school, and am now working my way through this second edition. Covering the topic completely takes the length of a career, but they've done about as good an overview as one could expect in 300 pages. Very appropriate for any health professional, trainers, or anyone else dealing with musculoskeletal issues of any sort.
